To All,

The same happens when producing graphics from large data sets.
"Formatting Notebook" appears a number of times along with a windows notice
of "Windows Not Responding" and a white screen.
If I wait long enough everything comes back.

Roger,

The same happens on my system which is the same as yours. A complete
crash of Mathematica 7 and Mathematica 6 runs just fine. I'd suggest you
contact
the Wolfram support guys on this (http://support.wolfram.com/  if they
haven't read this already) as it seems a serious issue.

Cheers -- Sjoerd
